Insight into Speciation from Historical Demography in the Phytophagous Beetle Genus Ophraella.

Abstract

Speciation in phytophagous insects is commonly associated with shifts in host use. Using a phylogenetic framework to identify recently diverged taxa that have undergone a radical host shift, this study focuses on how reconstruction of the historical demography of a species, in conjunction with branching patterns between species, provides insight into mode… (More)
